'Family of No Man' exhibition at 'Les Rencontres de la Photographie Arles'
Jun 30, 2018
I'm so excited to announce that one of my photographs from my series 'Shosho Jikinge - Grandmothers in Nairobi's slums fight off rapists' will be be part of 'THE FAMILY OF NO MAN' exhibition at Les Rencontres de la photographie, Arles next week! Thanks to Cosmos for this amazing opportunity!
The Family of No Man will be one of the main curatorial events at Arles Cosmos 2018. The exhibition has been curated to include female identifying photographers only. The aim of this curatorial proposition is to revisit Edward Steichen’s original 'Family of Man' exhibition (1955), which, in its time, was described “as one of the most ambitious undertakings in an art museum”. The Family of No Man will seek to replace the visual register of white male dominance inherent in the original project with an inclusive visual platform of how the world is seen today through non-male eyes.
